Yet another pot store coming to Port Orchard

How many legal marijuana stores can one town support?

It sure looks like we’ll find out in Port Orchard.

The Liquor and Cannabis Board approved an eighth shop for the Port Orchard area last week (see inset image).

The latest licensee is 21+ Recreational Marijuana, located at 3598 Bethel Road SE.

The address appears to be across the road from Walmart and next door to Legal Marijuana Superstore, a retailer approved back in December. 

The state has issued 17 marijuana retail licenses in Kitsap, bringing the county closer to its allotted cap of 20. 

Two more licenses can be issued in the county at large, and one more can be issued on Bainbridge Island.

The city of Bremerton reached its cap of four retail licenses in April.

Grower approved in Hansville

The board also licensed a marijuana producer and processor in North Kitsap last week.

The Organic Weedman will be located at 7990 NE Ecology Drive near the Hansville transfer station.

Twelve producer/processors and one standalone processor have been licensed in the county thus far.

A national pet store chain has sniffed out a location in Port Orchard.

City planners are reviewing permit applications for a 11,500-square foot Petco at the southwest corner of Vallair Court and Bethel Road.

The applicant is PacLand, a development firm with offices in Seattle.

The pet store and parking lot would occupy two vacant parcels owned by Seattle-based Port Orchard Retail, LLC.

The property is located across Vallair from Taco Time (see inset image). Customers would access the store from Vallair.

The city issued a mitigated determination of non-significance for the project and will take comments on environmental concerns through Friday. The full notice is posted below.

Petco has stores in Bremerton and Poulsbo.
